Vilone Village House Fire

On Tuesday afternoon April 18th at around 13:15 hours, the Elsmere Fire Co. along with area mutual aide units were dispatched to 18 Rigdon Rd in the Vilone Village community for a residential structure fire. Elsmere Fire units arrived on scene and reported a 2 story single family structure with fire showing from the second floor delta side. Units deployed two 2″ handlines to the second floor where they were met with heavy fire conditions. The fire was extinguished and placed under control in about 30 minutes. All searches of the structure were negative. Two residents were transported to the hospital to be evaluated for smoke inhalation. No other injuries were reported, and the Delaware state fire marshal is investigating. Elsmere was assisted by units from Cranston Heights, Five Points, Minquas of Newport, Hockessin, Mill Creek and Talleyville fire companies, as well as EMS assets from NCCEMS and Minqudale Fire Co.
